Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Second Reading (14 Sep 2021)

Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood: ...growing problem. The number is increasing year on year. The great majority are not for further offending but rather for often comparatively minor non-compliance with release conditions, such as not giving their correct or up-to-date address—and they do not always find that easy—or for mental health reasons. All these IPP prisoners, whether never yet released or recalled, have to...

Environment Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 59 (13 Sep 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: ...and brought forward by the Government. The reason we are here this evening is that surface-water flooding is a comparatively recent phenomenon. It was first identified by an East Yorkshireman, Sir Michael Pitt, in the context of his Pitt review in 2007. He concluded, very simply, that the Government should end the automatic right to connect to new developments. It is inappropriate for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Matter of the Day: Death of Pat Hume (13 Sep 2021)

Andrew Muir: ...That brought real brightness and clarity to her devotion to John through thick and thin and to her complete and undivided focus on achieving peace for this country. Following her passing, President Michael D Higgins described Pat's life as: "one of total commitment to community" and "to the possibilities of peace". The greatest thing we can all do is refocus on that and participate in and...

Scottish Parliament: Oil and Gas Licences (North Sea) (9 Sep 2021)

Michael Matheson: ...to decarbonise the sector. That is why I hope that all those members of the Scottish Parliament from the north-east will get behind the Acorn project and call on the UK Government to take action, give it approval and allow it to go ahead.

Afghanistan (18 Aug 2021)

Wayne David: ...in the House. I wish to pay tribute to the armed forces, some from my constituency, many of whom lost their life or suffered life-changing injuries. In particular, I refer to Sergeant-Major Michael Williams of my home village of Bedwas, who lost his life in combat with the Taliban. We are proud of them all. There is, I believe, a widespread consensus emerging in the House that it was a...

Covid-19 (Public Services Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (22 Jul 2021)

Baroness Brinton: ...happen straightaway, but, having read the Government’s response, I am not convinced it will happen soon. Like many others, I find it quite extraordinary that no Minister found it appropriate to give evidence. Even today, in an earlier Statement, the Health Minister said that the best time for reflecting was after the pandemic. We have learned since the publication of this report last...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2021)

Greg Smith: ...plans for a new prison adjacent to HMP Spring Hill and HMP Grendon. I know how hard local residents, our parish councils and Buckinghamshire councillors, such as Angela Macpherson, Frank Mahon and Michael Rand, have worked to make the case against it at consultation stage. I pay particular thanks to Rod Baker, whose detailed analysis and presentations on why these proposals are so wrong...

Tackling Knife Crime — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (20 Jul 2021)

Bill Esterson: ...for Luton North (Sarah Owen) on an excellent introduction. I feel for her constituents. She told a heartbreaking story about her 16-year-old constituent who was murdered. I am afraid that I shall give some examples of very similar stories from my constituency. In Sefton and across the Liverpool City Region, we have very good practice in the prevention of violent crime, including knife...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 47 (15 Jul 2021)

Lord Baker of Dorking: My Lords, I shall speak to the amendment that my noble friend Lord Willetts has just spoken to and the comments made by the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, concerning T-levels. This gives us an opportunity to discuss T-levels, probably for the first time. The Bill gives the Institute for Apprenticeships far too great a power in that it can decide, without any constraints, to abolish a...

Early Years Foundation Stage (Miscellaneous Amendments) and Childcare Fees (Amendment) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Regret (13 Jul 2021)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...Lords, I go further and say that never is the right time to introduce these absurd baseline tests for four year-olds. They should be allowed to wither on the vine. But this is all on a par with Michael Gove’s introduction of rigid exam systems, built on by Nick Gibb’s rote learning and testing, rather than the development of skills that would be useful to pupils in later lives and...

Water Safety — [David Mundell in the Chair] (12 Jul 2021)

Catherine McKinnell: ...there are so many dangers in the water that children are just not aware of. Something that Beckie Ramsay said about this really struck me. She said that by having school swimming lessons, perhaps giving children a curiosity about the water but neglecting the wider safety aspects, we could be teaching children just enough to get them killed. Water safety is about having the knowledge to...

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill (6 Jul 2021)

Michael Gove: Well, it gives power to the people. Fundamentally, all of us sit here at the pleasure of and at the disposal of our electorates. As we saw from the addled Parliament—or the paralysed Parliament or whatever you want to call the Parliament of 2017 to 2019—parliamentarians were actually frustrating the will of the people, in attempting to overturn Brexit and in attempting to sustain in...

Environment Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 152 (5 Jul 2021)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: ...issues. As noble Lords have said, we are talking about the application of poisons here, so we cannot take these issues lightly. My noble friend Lord Whitty and the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, have given powerful examples of the public health concerns which can arise from close contact with pesticides. As they said, asthma, respiratory problems, skin disorders and even cancers are...

Environment Bill - Committee (5th Day) (5 Jul 2021)

Viscount Colville of Culross: ...important that it needs to be wider in scope and swifter in implementation. The present target of late 2024 at the earliest is far too slow for such an important measure. It was first announced by Michael Gove in October 2017; the initial consultation promised implementation at the start of 2023; now we are told it will be the end of 2024 at the earliest. This chronology means that the...

UK Government Union Capability - Motion to Take Note (1 Jul 2021)

the Earl of Kinnoull: ...In our report, Brexit: Devolution, the European Union Committee commented in July 2017: “The devolved governments, and some of our witnesses, have also argued that fundamental reform is needed to give the devolved institutions a more formal role in UK decision-making post-Brexit, analogous to that of regions and states in federal systems.” I remember well the evidence sessions. The...

Environment Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 119 (30 Jun 2021)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...it costs local authorities £600 million a year to dispose of them. When such nappies are sent to landfill it takes 300 years—roughly 12 generations—for them to break down. Incinerating them gives rise to significant carbon emissions and local air pollution levels, an issue we keep coming back to. This is where my amendment links to that tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Bradshaw:...

Environment Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 110 (30 Jun 2021)

Lord Teverson: ...ago?—was that, at that moment, it seemed the Government had suddenly discovered soil for the first time. The great advocate at that time, who particularly seemed to have discovered soil, was Michael Gove, the then Environment Secretary. I ask my Liberal Democrat colleagues to put their ear muffs on for a moment: I thought that Michael Gove was an absolutely excellent Secretary of State...

Bill Presented: Subsidy Control (30 Jun 2021)

Presentation and First Reading ( Standing Order No. 57) Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng, supported by the Prime Minister, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Michael Gove, Secretary George Eustice, Secretary Robert Jenrick, Secretary Oliver Dowden, Secretary Alister Jack, Secretary Brandon Lewis, Secretary Simon Hart and Paul Scully, presented a Bill to make provision regulating the giving of subsidies...

Environment Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 94 (28 Jun 2021)

Lord Rooker: ...there would be where there is public uproar and where Ministers find it very useful to have an expert body that is able to speak to the public and engender their confidence. Believe you me, I am giving this away for free. It can be a bonus for Ministers, and they ought to wake up to that fact.

Environment Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 82 (28 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: ...entirely that we were promised oversight as near as possible equivalent to and as effective as that which pertained through our membership of the European Union, and that my right honourable friend Michael Gove, in the other place, said that it would be inappropriate for Defra to be in charge in the way that, it has now become apparent, it will be. On balance, I prefer the amendment in the...
